I want to show you guys some product shots that I did for a candle maker called Cass & Cate. She sent me several different scents, and it was really hard not to just keep them all for myself! She did actually let me keep the Hawaiian Lei one because I told her how much I loved it. It smells like you are sitting in the middle of a Plumeria tree. Amazing!
I really enjoyed shooting these. I decided to photograph each candle with something that referenced the scent. It was pretty difficult...and honestly looking back, I probably could have done better. I guess it was alright for a first time though :)
I also thought it would be nice to show the candles sitting out in a "home" environment, so I set up a little scene. I used the awesome embroidery that City Birds traded me. I actually really like how these turned out!
If you're looking for great candles to give as gifts this holiday season, check out Cass & Cate on Etsy or her website. I personally sniffed most of the candles she offers, and I can vouch for them! My favorites were Aloha, Hawaiian Lei and Warm Vanilla. Cherry Blossom was nice too...I feel like it would be a good bathroom candle because it has that "clean" smell.
Hope you guys had a nice weekend! I don't have much to report from my weekend, other than I finished a 5 mile run without passing out. It was the first of 8 long runs that I need to do to train for th half marathon in November! Wish me luck :)
